Cartoonist Doug Pike pours a little humor with his wine. The coauthor of a book of wine cartoons (with a foreword by legendary wine critic Robert M. Parker Jr.), Pike effectively takes any pretense out of wine drinking by illustrating miniature stories we can all relate to. Look for more cartoons from the book in the weeks to come. And remember: If you ever feel self-conscious trying to understand the notoriously complex world of reading wine labels, think about all the things you actually can do really well. WAG1187 (1)
